Importance & Benefits of Recycling to Your Business

People’s positive perception of recycling has been growing over the past few years. Household owners have never been more committed to recycling their wastes on a daily basis. However, many businesses fail to acknowledge the importance of regular waste recycling and ignore their needs.  Proper waste management, which includes recycling, plays a massive role in keeping our business, clients, and the community safe. This could also help companies to maximize the length of time using their resources, thus saving them money spent on those resources.   The safe and ethical disposal of waste also provides a long-lasting environmental impact. A healthy community and surroundings, on the other hand, can equate to a healthy business. More than ever, now is the time that companies should take waste recycling seriously. By making use of every piece of resources, you can do and achieve more in your business.  How Commercial Recycling Can Benefit Your Business  If you are looking for ways to cut waste costs, recycling your waste is one of the best ways. Many companies resort to cutting staff off to save on business expenses. But cutting on wastage, which is among the reasons for high business operating costs, can help you make a wiser choice.   With commercial waste recycling, not only can you use resources to maximum potential, but you are also saving on landfill costs. By having a commercial waste management business to manage your business’ waste collection, recycling, and disposal needs, you can easily organise things within your business. You can also maximise your staff’s productivity by focusing on their expertise instead of dealing with the wastes.   Now is the time to make smart decisions regarding waste recycling. With a suitable recycling method, you can minimise your effort but still get maximum results. With the help of commercial waste disposal experts, you can develop a recycling system within your company that could provide you with a long-term benefit.  If you want to know more about how your business can benefit from commercial waste recycling, feel free to speak with our specialists at North West Waste Consultants.

Is your wheelie bin overflowing?

If you can answer yes, then North West Waste Consultants wants to help solve a problem that we all suffer with; irregular and insufficient bin collections.

Waste management agency Business Waste says 54% of the public, struggling with collection times and space in their normal household bins, would prefer their council taxes to pay for more frequent bin collections.

Solution?

When our local Council reduced the number of collections for general household waste to two weekly collections it became evident there was a need for a bin bag collection service.

Despite residents’ best efforts to cut back and recycle as much as possible, households are still struggling. Bins are consistently overflowing, or additional bin bags are being placed at the side. This results in vermin such as maggots, flies and potentially rats … this causes some horrific odours that you or your neighbours wouldn’t appreciate, notwithstanding the risk of contamination and disease.

Although we are fully supportive of our local councils who have their hands tied with central government demands, that does not help the situation that virtually every householder finds themselves in.
We are a highly professional and environmentally-friendly company, covering a wide range of different areas, and we’re here to help you dispose of your extra waste at a sensible cost.

Waste Management Tips for Restaurant Owners

More than any other type of trade, the hospitality industry is among the biggest waste generators. For this reason, businesses in this trade, such as pubs and restaurants, require waste management services that will not only help them cut down on the waste they produce but will also help them become environmentally responsible when managing their wastes.  This article will discuss some helpful tips on responsible waste management that will benefit you as a restaurant owner. 
  1. Categorise your waste 
The first step in reducing commercial waste is identifying the type of waste you produce and categorising which ones go to landfills and which ones can be recycled. Having a hard time identifying? A professional commercial waste management company can help you. They can perform a waste audit to help you determine the possibilities of cutting down your waste disposal cost. 
  1. Set up the perfect waste collection method 
After determining the type of wastes your business produce, it is now time to set up a waste collection program that is suitable to your needs and cost-effective. Whether you need to hire skips or bin bags, knowing which type of waste collection method to use will help you save on cost.   For restaurants that produce a large amount of food waste, it is recommended to hire food waste collectors who can divert food waste instead of bringing them to landfills. This will not only help you skip on landfill fees, but they also help your business become more environment-friendly. 
  1. Keep track of your waste collection schedule 
Waste collection is a critical part of doing a food business, especially for hygiene and safety purposes.

Waste Management at FIFA 2018 World Cup

With the FIFA World Cup now reaching the business end of the tournament, fans in attendance are in almost unanimous agreement that it has been a complete success – at least from a hosting point of view. Supporters of current cup holders Germany might be disappointed with their team’s performance, but no one can deny that Russia have put on a magnificent welcome for the visitors.

With an aim of reducing the impact of FIFA World Cup Russia and raising the awareness of climate change, FIFA has launched a campaign that encourages the ticket applicants to offset the carbon emissions resulting from their travel to the tournament for free! When a FIFA World Cup Russia ticket holder signs up to participate in the campaign, FIFA will offset 2.9 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e), which is the average emission per ticket holder travelling from abroad.

Waste Management Concept

Fifa have ensured efficient and sustainable World Cup-related waste management, with waste-reduction measures including banning non-recyclable tableware, cutlery, packaging and plastic bags from stadiums, and offering hand dryers instead of paper towels in event toilets and using digital rather than paper-based communications “wherever possible”. FIFA have also committed to drive behaviour change among fans and stadium staff by offering a waste training programme to all employees and providing spectators with information on what type of waste can be recycled, bans on single-use items or the use of recycled materials is noticeably absent from the strategy. In Brazil, the tournament saw 39% more waste recycled than FIFA’s target of 320 tonnes after separate bins for recycling and general waste were used for the first time– but the event nonetheless created 776 tonnes of recyclable and 1,595 tonnes non-recyclable of waste, with no less expected to be produced in Russia this summer.

Already at this year’s tournament, Japanese fans have shown a shining example to their counterparts from other countries by tidying up in the stadium after their games – and their good deeds have encouraged similar behaviour from Senegalese and Polish fans as well. It will be particularly interesting to see if the biggest single-sport event in the world lives up to its tall claims regarding environmental sustainability.

Importance of Recycling

Recycling has become more popular and given importance more than ever. While many people are aware of its significance, some are just doing it since it is required by their local. For them, the reason for recycling doesn’t hold much importance. In this article, we will discuss the four reasons we have to separate recyclables from other wastes. Check out the reasons below and learn why it is crucial to recycle commercial and household wastes.

It conserves resources

Recycling and reprocessing materials into a new product can conserve natural resources. It reduces the need to mine and remove raw materials from the earth’s surface. Let us take a glass bottle as an example. If it is recycled into another glass bottle or product, the need to manufacture a new glass is also reduced. With the world’s population growing, the demand for earth’s resources is also increasing despite the fact they are not infinite. The best way to keep up with the demand without exhausting the natural resources is to recycle.

It reduces energy consumption

Manufacturing and transporting raw materials consume a large amount of energy. Through recycling, we are reducing the amount of energy used in the production of these materials.

It reduces landfill waste

Through recycling, the amount of waste that ends up in landfills also reduces. Landfills produce a high amount of methane gas, one of the major contributors to climate change. Leachate or toxic waters from landfills has also been a growing problem over the years. The toxic water could pass from the landfill ground to nearby streams and rivers and cause water pollution. Recyclable materials should then, therefore, be recycled and reproduced to reduce waste in landfills.

It reduces environmental harm

Processing raw materials are not only exhausting our natural resources but also harms the environment. Mining and logging, for example, destroy the natural animal habitat. Not only do animals suffer, but the transportation and processing of these materials also cause pollution.

IMPORTANCE OF RECYCLING PAPER, GLASS, PLASTIC & METAL

These materials are fully recyclable, thus should be recycled. Recycling them also preserves natural resources, reduces both water and air pollution, and reduces wastes ending up in landfills. As long as we take recycling seriously, we greatly contribute to saving our natural resources and keeping the earth safe and livable for the future generation.
